U serious?
Yes, they do I believe new range is 9 instead of original 6, marines are 5. thing is, the idea of mass marines is to 1 rax exp then keep harassing to prevent your opponent from being able to get colossi or limit max number to 1. Check the strategy part on TL for details

Terran micro is ******* crazy hard ( in TvZ esp ). I can't comment on Protoss since I rarely play them, but Zerg micro is easy as f*ck.

If you don't like the micro, why stick to Terran? Change over to Zerg or Protoss, after all you wanted to make the switch

Zerg isn't micro so much as just flanking. Maybe muta micro? It's not hard.

Terran lategame micro is intensive as ****. Spreading out marauders, ghosts, vikings and engaging perfectly while macroing ain't ez-pz. That's why I go mech =P

As to the above, Protoss is a trash, easymode race and I wouldn't go back to it. Zerg is okay but its more frustrating than anything.

I detect a very strong hint of opinionism in here

Yeah, to clarify I was Toss most of beta/release, went random for a few months and settled as Main Terran recently. Going Terran definitely improved me in every facet of the game. I just get a little frustrated by Toss being able to easily a-move to victory.

It's fun to roflstomp every zerg ever, though.

Masters.

It's just that my best friend is Zerg so I've had a master's level zerg practice partner since forever. It's all about marine-tank-thor and splitting them marines! Oh and double engi bays. And aggressive dropping. And get a raven to push creep back.

Yep, I know, just added it in there for no reason whatsoever Some parts of Zerg micro are easy, others are more difficult, that's all I was trying to point out. As for changing to Z, it's really up to you. If you think it's the race you want to play, go for it. More power to you, given you will be dealing with ZvsZs
As for that last comment, well, he said that he wouldn't go back to Protoss and goes mech in Terran. Based on that, I thought he make a switch from P to T
